When is the media center open?

The media center is open during normal school hours.  Students usually come down weekly with their teacher to exchange books and other materials.  Students also visit in small groups and individually as time permits.

How many books may I take out?

In general, K and 1st take out one book, 2nd and 3rd take 2-3, and 4th and 5th take 3-5 books.  Sometimes students need more and we encourage students to exchange books whenever they need to.

Is there a fine if I lose my book?

There are no fines for overdue books.  Students who have overdue books are not allowed to check out more books.  There is a replacement fee for a lost or damaged book.
